DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Moving Serato Cue Points In Internal Mode

August 22, 2019 by DJ Jay
All right. A little Serato, a little DJ during Scratch Live, but the same principle holds for Serato DJ. If you look up here, I've made a mistake, I have marked cue points out of order and I don't know if you've ever done this, but I've suddenly gone to Q2 and made it for Q3 and Q1 is suddenly Q4. So a lot of people say, I've got to kill them and then go back and redo them. Well, this is going to be an under a minute tip, because if you take your mouse like this and you realize you want this one first, drag it. I hope you guys can see this, try it again. Drag it up and it switches. So you can switch the cues all day long, make them any direction you want and what'll happen is it'll light up on the controller you're using on your cue markers in order. So if you're going off colors, if you're going off controll... [read more]

DJ Tips In Under A Minute:second Laptop And Drive As An Aux Player

August 15, 2019 by DJ Jay
All right. It's me, DJ Jay here, DJ tips in under a minute, going a little long today. We've got a situation here, we have laptop, we have hard drive, but while this is being used with the two USB ports, you have a controller, I realized I have another track and another hard drive. So I'm going to show you what I do to get around the issue of how do I hook up another hard drive to that laptop? Because for me, if I'm in the middle of mixing and playing music, I don't want to stop. So one of the best cables I've ever bought is that one, it's RCA's to mini. If you do not have this, you need this. So I'm going to plug it into the other computer here and what I'm going to do is I'm going to take the song, I'm going to bring it up to the player and then I'm going to play it from there. So there's the track. What'l... [read more]

DJ Tips In Under A Minute Let Your External HD Rest Before Moving

July 25, 2019 by DJ Jay
DJ tips in under a minute, the end of the night, my wedding is over. Now it's teardown time. Little tip for you, that's my hard drive. So what I've been told, since it has moving parts and if you touch it, you can feel it's spinning is I like to close down Serato, close down the laptop and wait about 30 to 60 seconds before I disengage the drive. Simply said, because I don't want to run into any problems with the drive either crashing or being damaged or anything. So in under a minute, you close Serato, then you wait. So what I will usually do is bring this down a little bit, start to get ready, feel it spin down and then I will close it and pop it. So in under a minute, be good to your drives, your drives will be good to you. See you.
